Where I tapped into power132 viewshere is where I tapped into my high/low beams using a 22-18 ( red ) scotch-lock tap, I am not saying this is the best way to do it, but at the time it was the easiest and quickest way to do it

Finished harness145 viewsHere we see the completed upgraded Headlight wiring harness.
To build a harness you will need the following ( colour of wire is your option, below is just what I used )
1 roll 25' each of red-power, green-grnd, white-neutral, 12 G wire, I also bought a 50' roll of 18 gauge blue-trigger wire
2 30/40 Bosch style relays, an assortment of spade style and ring terminal crimps in the 12-10 g ( yellow ) size, also a small pack of 22-18 g ( red ) scotch-locks for tapping into your oem high/low beams, various colours of shrink tube and 2 ato style fuse holders 12g ( I'm using 10amp fuses in both )


Note* as you can see,I had to use white wire for alot of my connections, this made it slightly harder to remember where things went, this is why I recommend 25' of red,white and green this way you won't run out part way through building your harness

Lines installed in the winch.786 viewsHere is the initial install of the lines on the winch. I ended up reversing the lines to get the correct flow. When pulling the valve handle back I want to spool in/up and forward will be out/down.Mar 10, 2008
